Sometimes pain remains despite prayer. Sometimes the bills keep adding up despite prayer. Sometimes nothing changes despite prayer. Sometimes God seems to be away despite prayer. The truth is that He never leaves and He never falters. He doesn’t make mistakes and He doesn’t take us for granted. One thing we need to understand is that despite the pain, the suffering and the struggles, God’s love for us is unchanging. God loves us all the time. He loves us when our prayers are answered and when we don’t receive what we have been waiting for. So why don’t we get answers to our prayers? I don’t have all the answers but I know we are called to persevere and to keep believing. The change will come. The healing will come. The answer will come. We might have to wait a lot longer than we wish but God is faithful.
Today I want to encourage you to persevere and to not give up when your prayers don’t seem to work. God is working behind the scenes and there is more happening than you know. God will honor His Word. Stay in the game Stay hopeful. Blessings are on their way. Don’t give up. I know that the pain can be unbearable. I have been there and I have cried out to God with no reply but then all of a sudden and out of the blue, God showed up. He will show up for you. Keep your faith high. Keep your hopes up. God will not leave you stranded when you are on the path of your journey. Have faith that things will change and patiently wait. Don’t waste the time while you wait. Do something productive and constructive.
Your prayers in the name of Jesus are never in vain. God never said that your prayers would be answered in the next week or in the next hour. He said that you should keep on praying with thanksgiving. This means that you make your request known once and then you keep thanking God no matter what. Pray with thanksgiving. Give thanks to the One who is going to change your situation. Give thanks to the One who is going to heal you. God is going to do something beautiful for you. Your life is going to be touched by Heaven. Don’t lose hope. When your prayers are not moving mountains, remember that God is watching your faith and He is taking care of your mountains in His timing. Rejoice and put all your hope in the Lord. May God bless you and protect you and remember that He will always love you!
